A new kitchen showroom has opened its doors at Whiteley Shopping Centre.

German kitchen retailer, Kutchenhaus, has taken over a 1,500 square foot unit becoming the fourth showroom run by designers Andy Barwell and Paul Turner.

Kutchenhaus is a franchise business with showrooms across the UK, with Andy and Paul being the very first franchise partners to open a fourth showroom after Chichester, Petersfield and Romsey.

Andy said: “The Whiteley showroom takes us to that next level and completes our portfolio. We’re excited to be opening this space, which will be our flagship showroom out of the four.

“Thanks to our collective knowledge and experience, we’re able to offer a first-class service from start to finish, and we’ve assembled a fantastic team of professionals who treat it like it’s their own business and will work across our four locations."

The new showroom hosts 12 displays with appliances from the likes of Bosch, NEFF and Siemens. 

Paul added: “The potential is massive and it’s an exciting time for us to be opening this space. This showroom has a premium feel, with displays showcasing the very latest in kitchen technology, and some niche products which are difficult to find elsewhere. 

“In terms of location, we’re situated close to places like Wagamama, M&S Food and Cineworld, so we can welcome passers-by, as well as those who are already on their journey to finding a new kitchen.”

Also working at Kutchenhaus Whiteley are Romsey showroom manager Simon Passaway, designer Iain Wraxall, and lead taker Susan Dalgarno.

Launching with a VIP night, followed by an opening weekend, guests were able to attend and explore the space across three days.

As part of its opening weekend, Kutchenhaus Whiteley held live cooking demonstrations from a professional chef and music from a Spanish guitarist.
